@Brutha-Man I don't know if you've been watching any of these selling on ebay, but what few are on there are usually used, and going for the same price as a new one. If for some reason the OneWheel isn't for you, it's not like you couldn't sell it for exactly what you paid for it within a week.
Youre talkong about lightning. Just like your quote says, if you get struck, the rubber would have made no difference. Also as scary as getting struck by lightning is, it's not likely to happen. These are not rare, but also not common things to happen. Stop worrying and keep riding!
Since the product is mostly it's a big fancy tire wheel, what happens when it wears out? How long can you use it before it does? Has this thing got a chamber (i.e. prone to blowing up / tears / holes) or is it something else?
I've never had a problem at all. The tire is good for about 1,000 miles. The tire also has a self sealing slime in it that supposedly can self seal a 9mm bullet. If and when your tire wears out, you simply send it back to onewheel, and they put a new one on for you. This has to be done by them since the board has to be re calibrated if you take it apart to put a new tire on.
Best of luck,
Onewheels can be very temperamental when being waken up. It's important you don't press the pressure sensitive pad on the front pad when you press the power switch to turn the board on, otherwise, it will ask you for some personal space as you are finding out.
Looks like you can pick up a used 4s for $50 on eBay buy it now.
Anyone know what is the oldest iPod touch model that would work?
That would probably be even cheaper.
The app is a total must so I'd recommend android users getting a compatible iOS device to use until the android app is out. Then stick it on eBay and get your money back after the android app is out.
There are safety messages everywhere on every product. And with this product being motor driven, it would be advised to do things safely. If the manual said "go off-road" there may be a lot of beginner riders with broken arms.
I skate at my own risk knowing what may occur. Off-road may not be advised, but it is fun as hell!!! Be safe out there guys.
I have probably destroyed my warranty but regardless of that matter, I have total faith in the company to provide whatever services that are necessary to get me riding again. I already went through my first tire and they got me back riding in no time at all. I take risks but I worry more about breaking my neck than my board. These guys at FM are good folks.
